What you may be hearing is the timing belt tensioner rattling back and forth because it can't hold it's tension any more. The tensioner will not loosen the belt tension enough to make the belt jump. I changed one on our Trooper and took me 2 hours and I never had to remove the timing belt.

    Depending on the shop rates there where you're at, will determine how much you'll spend. For example, my shop rate is $75.00/hour so the job would cost $150.00 labor. I don't remember how much the tensioner was though. Some shops will allow you to buy the part and bring it in for them to install but some won't because they can't upcharge the part. Definitely call around and ask how much their shop rate is and if you can bring in the part. Some "mom and pop" shops like our won't mind if your own part. The Chilton labor guide calls for 2.4 hours for the job. If the shop says it take longer than that, they're after your money. Do some shopping!

Charging system is not working i thought i have tried everything .maybe i missed something

you actually trust the supposedly knowledgeable "part guys" at your local autozone regarding automotive repair. hmm. well my answer to you is take it to someone or a shop and have them load test your alternator and see if its putting out the sufficient amperage and voltage. make sure you get a good battery, and not of those cheap ones from autozone. i recommend interstate batteries or optima batteries.

1997 Nissan Maxima w/330,000 miles, excellent condition. Had bobbing when turning but no popping like most axles do, pulled into Nissan place and bearings blew out of axle. They replaced and said may...

most shops will check the mounts for you for free, and replacing the axles will be a normal thing for the amount of miles you have on your car,, ( 2 times) they don't always pop or click when they go bad,, they just GOOOO ,, motor mounts are around 100 bucks,, search prices as they vary a bunch ,, I would suggest you take your car to a transmission shop, and ask them for a normal service,, that way you get the trans serviced, and mention to them about the motor mounts, they will check them for you ,, again shop prices,, I got my trans fluids and filter changed for 39 dollars just last week , and they told me I had a bad muffler mount I was unaware of,, when its up on the rack its so much easier to detect problems,, and this was a cheap way for me to go, and I still got the tarans serviced

The electric radiator fan runs after truck is shut off. Will turn off after 30-40 min. Is this normal?

no it is not normal....have a repair shop check the coolant fan sending unit or the coolant fan relay...a bad sending unit maybe sending a false overheating signal to the fan causeing it to stay on or the on off fan relay maybe sticking make sure the jeep is not actually running hot the temp guage maybe reading the wrong temp

Hello, You can get a free scan at Autozone, Oreillys, or Advance autoparts. If you have the double overhead cam V-8, there were problems with a part called a "Cam Phaser". If the noise goes away after 2000RPM then its an indication of the Cam Phaser problem. Only the V-8's have the problem.

You can have other problems like electrical parts for the sparkplugs arcing and making noise. The injectors for the fuel have a normal clicking sound as they work. Worn hydraulic valve lifters can make noise and so can adjustable lifters if they need adjusting. A simple process.

You best bet would be to go to 2 different autoparts stores for the scan and see if the result is the same. Sometimes the guys will not want to scan something unless a "check light" is on. In that case, you can ask them to listen to it because not everything will show up on the scanner anyway.

Many Independent shops get parts from the same autoparts stores you and I deal with. They know who will treat you right and the autoparts guys will likely know how big a deal it will be to fix your car. There are books in the autoparts stores which can explain a repair.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you in fixing your Explorer.

Fan for heater don't can i fix it ?

if your not familiar with automotive electrical work i would take it to a shop as you can easily make more problems by just poking around. But if the fan doesnt work at all i would suspect the blower motor itself or maybe the switch (big maybe). if you only have certain speeds i would replace the blower motor resistor (common problem).

Want to know how much products cost

Well you didnt really explain what hes replacing, either exhaust or intake manifold?

Either way a price of 400 seems reasonable, my shop charges 92.50 an hour for labor so 4 hours of labor would be a little under 400 without tax..

But if he charged you 1200 to install a carb, than thats very unreasonable, it should take no more than 2 hours at most to install a carb. But if you dont trust his work, then take it somewhere else

not a big problem. It may be tie rod wearing. If you hear a click when turning it would be the ball joints. If it does not make clicking sound, then most likely tie rod ends or improper alignment

I think its you alternator, the battery and alternator kind of work back to back with each other. I will take the car to shop that you know and can trust and have them diagnose the car all together. Good Luck.
